Applications for Cortex academy are closed!

At exactly midnight, applications for the largest education program in the field of ICT in Montenegro were closed, with a total number of applications – 1,292.

The Cortex Academy combined all the education programs of the members of the ICT Cortex cluster, and at the same time provided an additional, online form of education in five areas: programming, project management, software testing, marketing, and design.

Considering a large number of applications and the different motives of Cortex Academy participants, in the next step the following groups will be distinguished:

Participants of the Cortex Academy in ICT Cortex member companies

Educators: Alicorn, Amplitudo, Bild studio, Coinis, Codeus, Codepixel, Data Design, Digital Bee, Logate Academy, Oykos, Omnitech, Optimus Smart Academy, Sky Sat

In January, this group of participants is expected to have interviews and/or a selection task at the company that conducts the course in question. The start of education is planned for February 2022.

Participants of online courses SEEKING EMPLOYMENT in the field of programming (students and seniors)

This group refers to candidates seeking employment in the field of programming.

After completing the online training and the selection project, which is necessary to do, candidates have the possibility of employment in companies that are members of ICT Cortex.

The deadline for listening to the online course is from January to May.

The first condition is to successfully meet the conditions imposed by the course itself.

At the end of the course listening period, in May, these candidates will receive a practical task, the successful completion of which will be the ticket to work in companies.

Participants of online courses WITHOUT SEARCHING FOR EMPLOYMENT in the field of programming (students and seniors)

This group refers to participants who applied for courses in the field of programming to retrain or upgrade, without looking for employment in the field of programming.

The group also applies to participants who have applied for courses in other fields: project management, design, software testing and marketing, regardless of whether they are looking for employment in those fields or not.

These participants are expected to conscientiously use the opportunity for additional education and fulfill the conditions required by the courses themselves. No additional tasks by ICT Cortex.

High school students applying for the Cortex internship: Let’s do IT!

For these candidates, the primary online course is the Complete PHP From Scratch Course for Beginners, which is taken from January to March, followed by the first elimination test (March 2022).

From March to May, candidates take the next course Object Oriented PHP and MVC, followed by the second elimination test (May 2022).

If both tests are passed successfully, the candidates are followed by an eight-week internship in ICT Cortex companies.

High school students who take courses for their improvement, without applying for Cortex practice

These participants are expected to conscientiously use the opportunity for additional education and fulfill the conditions required by the courses themselves. No additional tasks by ICT Cortex.

All registered candidates will receive detailed instructions and information on further steps via e-mail notification.

Great support in the realization of this project was given by Help Montenegro (through the Reeconomy project), Crnogorski Telekom, and Cortex Fondacija, which are the initiators of the online courses.

Certainly, the greatest gratitude goes to the members of ICT Cortex, the educators who opened their doors to all future members of the ICT community, eager to acquire new knowledge!
